Videos: S-57 ‘Catlow’ Racing Around The Island

August 24, 2014

The shorelines were crowded with onlookers on Sunday [Aug 17] when the 2014 Around the Island Powerboat Race took place, with sponsor Rubis putting up a $10,000 purse for the event.

Cameron Harris and Lavon Seymour racing in S-57 “Catlow” were the second boat to cross the finish line at Ferry Reach in a time of 40.49. Their course time would be the fastest race time of the day. The S-57 thirty foot Predator came in some two minutes behind the race winners after having started the race some eighteen minutes behind them.
